Preparing for Bad Ice conditions in Labrador West
While spring has sprung all across the province, Labrador West is a little late joining the party. Many of the ponds and lakes are still covered with ice. The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary in Labrador City say they have received calls about people venturing out on the ice and even a few reports of snow mobiles cross the thin ice. The fire department in Labrador City got out a few specialized wet suits to practice ice water rescues. Jeremy Eaton spoke with the fire Chief Mario Berthiaume.
